Originally conceived to breathe life into the fledgling U.S. ethanol industry and reduce our dependence on foreign oil, continued tinkering with the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) has turned the program into a nightmare.
It is reported that back before Obama became a Senator, or announced his presidential bid, and before the founding of the Soros-funded Center for American Progress (CAP) a group of liberals met in 2002 at Soros’ Long Island Southampton beach house to draft a plan to defeat President Bush in the presidential election of 2004. Without that meeting, Lt. Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson, says: “Barack Obama would be … an unremarkable and unheard of state senator. Instead, Barack Obama is the President of the United States.”
Stealing is OK as long as each side gets their cut. This is the standard response that you give when anyone points out that your heroes don’t quite live up to the ideals that they supposedly embody: “Everyone does it.”
Their losses haven’t made headline news—making them easy to miss, and the alliance is not likely to beat a hasty retreat, but looking at them added together, I see an opening for a breakthrough.
In my unauthorized capacity do hereby extend the offer of asylum to any Coloradoans seeking same in the Beehive State, as their state slides toward Californiacation.
Data actually suggests that the earth stopped warming 15 years ago. This pause in warming wasn’t anticipated in any climate change models created by global warming advocates. It must have been an executive order.
I don’t think John McCain would appreciate you calling him a woman. I know I don’t appreciate it. I think it’s much better to call him either: 1) a Hobbit; or 2) a Wacko Bird.
Forbes writer, Christopher Helman, believes that “this Energy Security Trust could well serve as the tip of a wedge that could some day lever open a new carbon tax.”
The application to permit construction on the Keystone pipeline was filed in September 2008. Since then, four reports have been produced on the potential environmental impact of the pipeline—each coming in with essentially the same conclusion.
Washington only talks about two choices when the cost of running the government exceeds the revenues: raising taxes and cutting spending. Taxes were raised as a part of the fiscal cliff deal. Sequester fills out the other half of the equation by cutting spending.
Do commodities also have a place in your portfolio? After all, they seem to rise and fall with alacrity, and investors often only notice them after they've made sharp gains or plunges.
Though no speech transcript exists, the Santa Fe New Mexican covered Hansen’s presentation at the Institute, during which he predicted catastrophes, such as rising seas and species extinctions “if carbon-based fuels continue to be used at the same rate as today.”
The technology, known as Coal-Direct Chemical Looping (CCDL), captures more than 99 percent of coal's carbon dioxide emissions based on laboratory research.
If you've ever visited Old Faithful at Yellowstone National Park or taken a hot springs bath, then you understand the basic principle. In the simplest terms, geothermal heat is produced deep in the earth's crust and then carried toward the surface by rising magma, the shifting of tectonic plates and other geologic forces.
I find it hard to believe that 35,000-40,000 global warming activists, who by all rights should not have winter gear- they shouldn’t have it, nor should they be allowed to have it- showed up over the weekend in frigid DC to protest…um…something.
Energy consumption and economic growth go hand-in-hand. A successful country uses more energy, not less. But it's understandable why Obama gets confused over it.
If you are going to accuse someone of being a pompous demagogue, and "ignoring the main body of intellectual knowledge," you really ought to at least know how to spell “demagog” correctly.
Government has replaced science with, well, fiction. Consider the push for renewable fuels.
A new report from the UK research team at Price Waterhouse and Cooper confirms what we knew all along: We’re right and they’re wrong. Really wrong; once-in-a-lifetime, disastrously wrong if grading on the scale the rest of us are subject to. Grading on the liberal scale, however, it’s just normal, everyday, run of the mill errors in judgment, math, worldview, physics and fluid mechanics that liberals deal with all the time.
With regard to the Army Corps of Engineers, pork barrel politics, boondoggles, and environmental harm have been the modus operandi for more than a century.
